G&M Services offers photoluminescence lighting installation, a form of illumination used throughout buildings when there isn’t a light source available due to an emergency or power failure. Photoluminescence is used in fire, life, and other safety applications in emergencies when a building has lost power or experienced an emergency disaster that has cut electricity to the building. Photoluminescence can help lead individuals to safety by illuminating exit signs, stairs, and alternative exit sources. However, how does it compare to traditional emergency backup lighting?
Glowing in the Dark
Photoluminescence glows in the dark, which acts as a marker in poorly-lit spaces to help guide individuals to safety. Through the glow of photoluminescence lighting, people can become oriented with their surroundings and navigate illuminated pathways to find a safe exit. Since photoluminescence glows in the dark and requires no power source, it is a reliable source of illuminating light in emergencies. Traditional emergency backup lighting requires power, which may cause a partial or total failure with limited operating time in emergencies.
Visibility in Emergency Fire Scenarios
Smoke, flames, and flashing emergency lists can quickly engulf a room in a sudden and terrifying evacuation scenario. Between the fumes, lights, and alarm screeches, occupants can become disoriented while trying to find a way out. With photoluminescent lighting for fire escapes and exit signs, everyone can find an egress out of a building undergoing an emergency. Since photoluminescent lighting requires no external power source and no source of sunlight in comparison to traditional emergency backup lighting, you can ensure that occupants have a safely marked exit no matter what.
Required by Maryland Law
Though photoluminescent lighting used to be deployed in the traffic, flight, and train industries to help guide passengers to safety, Maryland law has since changed. As such, the new legislation requires that photoluminescent lighting is configured according to state codes and guidelines. The International Building Code also mandates that photoluminescent lighting is installed throughout buildings to aid individuals in emergency-exit situations. All of this shows you that photoluminescent lighting is superior compared to traditional emergency backup lighting. Our qualified technicians can install photoluminescent lighting up and make sure it will pass muster for you.
